        Your booking is confirmed, and the chalet shall be made available for your arrival (from 3pm) on arrival date.  The remaining 80% is to be paid a minimum of 6 weeks prior to arrival. If it is not paid, the booking is deemed void.  

        In the event of cancellation by the host, in normal cases, the full amount is to be returned to the guest.  In the event of cancellation by the guest, the deposit is to be kept by the host. If the cancellation is within 6 weeks of arrival (after having received the full amount), then it remains the decision of the host as to whether any of these monies are to be returned.

Who?

Who's Doug?

          I started DMG   

8 years ago (when I

was 26) after   having

skied   all over the

world, earning money

from many different means (including some    comically questionable ones!).      I have  been a backpacker   in over 80 countries   and built DMG thinking of my favourite places and most memorable times.

        I first ran a ski chalet at the tender age of 18, and thought to myself "One day...  I'll be the guy who owns the    chalet and pays these young whippersnappers peanuts to do the dirty work!"  Well, 8 years later I wrote a business plan & actually made it happen!

          9 years on from that  , and I've totally renovated the banged up, old house; increased its size in all directions, and got 3 wonderful apartments (I live in the smallest, up in the rafters).

          It has been a labour of love.  Blood has been shed countless times on countless 16 hour shifts while myself and many friends over the years have strived to learn all trades in order to make this possible.  Thankfully I still have all my fingers, and still enjoy building and working on Doug's Mountain Getaway.  I am still a long way from losing my passion & desire for improving it further, so those that come back year after year get to appreciate all these changes with me.

Who has helped?

        If you've seen the My House video, you'll have seen all the helpers,  friends and family  who have made this place possible.  In particular my mum for  her support &  for believing in my idea, and Jamie for being there when I've really needed him and  for all his hours of effort and motivation he's given me!

Exclusive Chalet... or Hostel?!

So which is it?!

           DMG was Austria's highest rated hostel since the year it opened.    We never dropped below a 98% rating  from many hundred reviews.  It was actually the highest rated hostel in all  German -speaking countries - but we could never win Europe's Best Hostel  award because we had '10 beds or under'(?!)

              Needless to say, a   lot   of happy, fun times were had here.  Romances & relationships were born - never to end.  DMG tattoos were inked;    and memories will never be forgotten.  

                 2018 was a big year for me though, and due to a number of reasons, the hostel was closed.     Sooo...    A new phase begins!  I took out a huge  bank loan,  renovated the old metalworks into something beautiful, and set to work on the old DMG too, by    upgrading, revamping, replacing and  generally sprucing up the place, ready for its new target audience -  family groups / friends.
